If set to prompt, a menu will be displayed when you exit playback mode.  
The options available will allow you to save your position, delete the

The above is the best proof that we have /way/ too many settings--when a 
long-time user of Myth can't figure out the right combination of 
settings to do what he wants because the useful settings (and this one 
is not one proposed for removal) are buried with a bunch of 
usele^H^H^H^H^Hless-useful ones.  :)

http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/6322 (but mythui/fully themable--I'm 
not sure if #6322 has been updated with mythui/theming support).
